So the back story is....I've had diesels and gassers, diesel is awesome, decided to look for a OBS 2500 and found this gem at a Toyota dealership in Daphne AL nearly 5hr from where I live. Had everything I wanted and more. 2wd because it's simpler. Besides I have 4x4 wheelers to go play with, and weather here in Bama is (usually not too bad). Low low miles, two owners, good carfax, straight body. It booked like 31grand. They were asking 25grand. I got it for 24,500. So for a lbz lt2 I felt I did pretty good:thumb

I am open to suggestions as to what I need to spend money and time on..... I love the forum and learn stuff all the time from what others are doing and have done. My grandpa built GM vehicles, my late dad was the BEST mechanic ever.....period. and I am proud to be an American:thumb. I also appreciate all the people serving us everyday putting their lives on the line day in and out. Law enforcement. Firefighters, first responders, military! And of course our women that put up with our shah nah nah gens, like spending way too much on that truck and than 4wheeler and etc! And God blessed America, and everyone else. Thank Him!

Did the ppe airbox mod from some online instructions. Free labor (me) and no new material to buy, cool!. This forum and Google are awesome!!! YouTube can be helpful too not just for entertainment sometimes:rofl:rof
Also most of the vendors we deal with are cool to email or call and ask questions. Too many times we mess up by not contacting someone

I'm guessing the first fuel filter I pulled off and cut open might have been the second filter the truck had ever saw.... I hope it wasn't original, injector rates checked out ok:neener
